We had a great response from members wanting to take part in the Festival of the Horse qualifier at Llanymynech. We had 10 members taking part, from the 80 through to the 100cm
Kat Morgan was 1st to go, going individually in the 100, Kat & Davies set the day up well for us by going double clear. then it was the turn of the 90’s teams, Team 1 Katie Ellis, Meg Davies, Vicky Robson & Sam Davies, Katie again had a great 2 rounds, going clear, Vicky went really well, & Meg & Sam had an let’s say “Eventful day!” Unfortunately no team placing. Then team 2 was Rachel Wooley who had a great XC round, Katie who again went double clear, Charlotte Saunders had a return to eventing & had 2 great rounds, & Elspeth who again flew round both courses. They were just out of the placings coming 7th.
Gina Williams went individually in the 80, not having done anything like this before & had a whale of a time, just 1 little blip, but otherwise flawless!
Big thank you to our volunteers, Claire Owen, Lucy & Laura Smith. They were there for the whole day so that our members could take part, many thanks as without you, we are not able to compete in area qualifiers.
I hope this may spur more members to take part in area qualifiers, as its great fun & a great way to meet other members. We put on training events beforehand, & try & squeeze in a social night too!
The next area competition is at Llanymynech again on June 21st, which is the Horse Trials, please contact Sam if you want to take part by May 27th at the very latest.
